3He lived among the tombs. And no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain,3and he had his dwelling among the tombs. And no one was able to bind him anymore, even with a chain;
4for he had often been bound with shackles and chains, but he wrenched the chains apart, and he broke the shackles in pieces. No one had the strength to subdue him.4because he had often been bound with shackles and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him and the shackles broken in pieces, and no one was strong enough to subdue him.

6And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and fell down before him.6Seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him;
7And crying out with a loud voice, he said, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me.”7and shouting with a loud voice, he said, "What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God, do not torment me!"
8For he was saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”8For He had been saying to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!"

11Now a great herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside,11Now there was a large herd of swine feeding nearby on the mountain.
12and they begged him, saying, “Send us to the pigs; let us enter them.”12The demons implored Him, saying, "Send us into the swine so that we may enter them."
13So he gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out and entered the pigs; and the herd, numbering about two thousand, rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the sea.13Jesus gave them permission. And coming out, the unclean spirits entered the swine; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, about two thousand of them; and they were drowned in the sea.

15And they came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man, the one who had had the legion, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid.15They came to Jesus and observed the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the "legion"; and they became frightened.
16And those who had seen it described to them what had happened to the demon-possessed man and to the pigs.16Those who had seen it described to them how it had happened to the demon-possessed man, and all about the swine.

18As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him.18As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed was imploring Him that he might accompany Him.
19And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”19And He did not let him, but He said to him, "Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you."

27She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment.27after hearing about Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind Him and touched His cloak.
28For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.”28For she thought, "If I just touch His garments, I will get well."
29And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.29Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
30And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone out from him, immediately turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my garments?”30Immediately Jesus, perceiving in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around in the crowd and said, "Who touched My garments?"
31And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’”31And His disciples said to Him, "You see the crowd pressing in on You, and You say, 'Who touched Me?'"

35While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”35While He was still speaking, they came from the house of the synagogue official, saying, "Your daughter has died; why trouble the Teacher anymore?"
36But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.”36But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, said to the synagogue official, "Do not be afraid any longer, only believe."
37And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James.37And He allowed no one to accompany Him, except Peter and James and John the brother of James.

40And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him and went in where the child was.40They began laughing at Him. But putting them all out, He took along the child's father and mother and His own companions, and entered the room where the child was.
41Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Talitha cumi,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.”41Taking the child by the hand, He said to her, "Talitha kum!" (which translated means, "Little girl, I say to you, get up!").
42And immediately the girl got up and began walking (for she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement.42Immediately the girl got up and began to walk, for she was twelve years old. And immediately they were completely astounded.
43And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.43And He gave them strict orders that no one should know about this, and He said that something should be given her to eat.
